Aussie Pie Since 1800

Early settlers brought the pie to Australia, which instantly gained popularity due to it’s basic, readily available ingredients. Mutton was used in early pies as in those days it was a lower price even than vegetables. The golden crust meat and gravy snacks were available in Sydney in the mid-1800’s, oftensold as a counter lunch in hotels. In years to follow, pies were sold from pie carts which stopped near places of entertainment or where large groups gathered. The Pie Man was a common sight in the streets of Sydney and Melbourne, selling hot pies from a large tin box kept warm by a small charcoal stove. They progressed to horse-drawn contraptions, then to warmers on the back of a Chevy ute to access popular holiday destinations and sporting events.

Varieties Of Pie Meat pies have always been a great value, convenient meal. Australia’s multicultural influence means that along with traditional flavours. Prime meat cuts such as fillet steak, rump and sirloin do not necessarily make good pies as they lack the natural jelling agent collagen, which is spread throughout the meat fibres holding them together. After the popularity of purchasing pies has raised quickly in the last ten years, the traditional pies has no longer satify people’s need. More and more flavour had been developed. We now have pies filled with Beef Stroganoff, Beef Curry, Roast Vegetables, etc. Beef is still the most popular flavour, although there is growing demand for more gourmet flavours.
